I may be too demanding, but it seems to me that static image maps like these really ought to display hovered-over names and other textual bits IN CONTEXT. I.e. superimposed over chosen targets; never leaving the page/ focus; and preferably also dimming the surroundings while selected person profile is on screen.

..achieved with a 'simple' image map? Oh, what a wasted opportunity for some nifty snazzy ultra-geeky tech! Well, the painting itself is pretty cool, me thinks so.. I'll let this one slide :)

Looks like a random list of people the guy picked out to include in the painting. I am surprised at the many people I did not see. But then again, maybe there is a pattern I am not picking up.

[put at-character here]FOR the merge in the painting is a big enough deal. Besides it is not like the guy drew the whole thing on a computer where objects can be individually selected and brought out. This is an original hand drawn picture.
